There is uncertainty over the Frenchman’s future, as he has confirmed he will not sign a contract extension on his current deal which runs out in June 2024.

But his reported £893,000-per-week wages are seen as a potential challenge for any suitor.

Madrid will reportedly tell his agent-mother, Fayza Lamari, that Mbappe will have to take a pay cut if he does eventually move to the Bernabeu.

Los Blancos’ plan remains to approach him as a free agent next summer.
